Duplicate memorial
It was recently brought to my attention that their was a duplicate memorial for (118335744) Michael L. Harris. In September of this year, I took photos of Maple Springs C.P. Church Cemetery, Henderson Co., TN. I created a memorial for Michael Leon Harris (169378731) when I could not find a memorial to go with the photo I had taken. I was contacted by someone telling me that there was already a memorial for Michael Leon Harris at Maple Spring Cemetery, Mercer, TN. I can delete my memorial at Maple Springs, Henderson Co, TN, if you would like to change your memorial to the correct cemetery.

Robert Harreld
Gwen, You posted a nice photo of Mr. Harreld's stone from Duncan Cemetery. From the photo, it would appear there are many white stones, very attractive against the green grass. Was it just the angle of he shot, or are most of the stones this same material? It reminded me of Arlington. Do you live near Logan Co, KY? Thanks, Diane

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 146787041
Sorry, just realized I made an error in my second reply, in it I said that you cited Feb. 1863, when it was actually Dec. 1863 that you cited, I was still tired after getting home from Dragon Con 2015, sorry for the error on my part.

Well anyways like I said in my first reply, those links I gave are my sources for his death date.

I hope this helps,

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 146787041
Sorry, I forgot to mention that Miles BONNER (Jr.) (1839-1914) was known as "Young Miles" & that his brother Thomas M. BONNER (born: c1838) died on February 4th, 1863 from a gunshot wound received in the "Battle of Murfreesboro", but he served in the 16th Reg't. TN. Inf., C.S.A.

Both Miles BONNER's I mentioned in the previous reply were listed as "Present" for the May & June 1863 Company Muster Roll, thus showing they both were alive past the Feb. 1863 date you cited.

Again I hope this helps,

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 146787041
This link is from a public tree on & this link as well are my sources for his death date.

Of note, two Miles Bonner's served in the same company of Holeman's, but the one labeled as Miles Bonner Sr. was Medley Miles BONNER "aka Miles Jr." (1827-1864) a son of John N. BONNER (c1793-1845) & Elizabeth EVANS (c1793-1847) while the other one was labeled as Miles Bonner Jr. & he was Miles BONNER (Jr.) (1839-1914) a son of Miles BONNER Sr. (1804-1888) & Lucy KING (1810-1886).

The reason Medley Miles BONNER was known as Miles Jr. is because he was 12 years older than his 1st cousin Miles BONNER (Jr.) the son of his uncle Miles BONNER Sr.

I hope this helps,
McMinnville, TN.

You certainly may use my photograph and there is no need to give me credit. Treat it as if it were yours.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 43407767
I would think that there would be a place for the mother beside the daughter. Especially, since she specified a monument, but did not mention buying a lot. It has been a number of years since we were in McMinnville, but at that time they had done a lot of work in that cemetery, and I would hope this has continued.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 43407767
This was a very nice tribute. Thank you for sending this. Wouldn't you assume her parents are also buried in McMinnville? We did not photograph all the markers and I am sure some have also been destroyed. Hopefully, someone will dioscover the markers for her parents.

RE: Johnny McCauley
Thank you for the info on how to find your tree. Found with no difficulty. Here's to an unusual name (unlike "John McCauley"!). Please do let me know if there's anything I can do to repay the favor.

RE: Johnny McCauley
Would you mind if I took a look at your tree? I'm also happy to share mine. Easiest way I've found to get to a tree is to search for the member's Ancestry name. Mine is scald64.

Johnny McCauley
Hi Gwen. I saw a memorial you left on Johnny McCauley and wondered if you have researched that family and have an on-line tree. I am a descendant of John McCauley (a different John from the Johnny in TN) but who is somehow related to the rest of the McCauleys who came from County Antrim, Ireland, and settled in North Carolina.

My John went to Mississippi Territory in about 1800. I suspect that way back we are related. I and several of my cousins have had our DNA done on Ancestry. We're trying to figure out all these connections and would love to collaborate with you.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Rebecca Watson Rowlett
Thank you for contacting me regarding my memorial for Rebecca Jane Watson and whether or not she is married to Edward Rowlett. I was working off the research of Lucille Westbrook who has done considerable research for the families who moved from the Bedford Co, Tennessee area to Howard County, Arkansas in her book "Corinth Revisited." I had noticed that there was no marriage record for Rebecca Watson but that does happen sometimes so I left the information as it was. I would be happy to remove her from Find A Grave and you can make a new memorial for the correct one. Let me know if that is what you want me to do.

Aunt Rodge was my sister 1st grade teacher, for a short time. My family stayed a while with Aunt Rodge and Uncle Rex as we migrated back to Memphis from Oak Ridge after the war.

My teacher during that time was Miss Kuykendal (sp.?). 4th grade.

My Dad and grandmother lived for a time in the little house behind the Presbyterian Church.

My parents are buried in the Yorkville Cemetery.

Thank you for the info on this family. They were my husband's mother's family. I remember visiting in their home and he showed me the houses where he visited as a child. The article surely had many errors. I'm glad you wrote a correction.
